Russell Wilson started slow but finished strong as the Seahawks quarterback got hot in the fourth quarter in front of his home crowd and carried Seattle to a 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.

Graham caught just one pass (on his only target) for 13 yards and had to leave early with an injury that will reportedly force him to miss several weeks.

The Packers find themselves in a situation, sitting at 4-4-1 and in third place in the NFC after breaking a two-game losing streak Sunday with a 31-12 win over the Dolphins.

But after their first two plays of the drive saw them pick up eight yards, Rodgers' pass on 3rd-and-2 fell incomplete, and head coach Mike McCarthy opted to punt the ball away with 4:20 left on the clock and only one timeout in their pocket.

Green Bay is 21st in the National Football League at 4.5 yards allowed per carry.

Chris Carson rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown, overcoming the mistake of fumbling on the first play of the game and setting up Green Bay's opening score. The Packers gained just 114 yards in the second half, half coming on the one throw from Rodgers to Adams.

Wilson had one more answer. And after the Seahawks took the lead back (27-24) with just over five minutes to play, it seemed nearly certain Aaron Rodgers would add another 4th quarter game-winning drive to his resume.
